I’ve been having fun with the amazing Share What You Love Sneak Peak Bundle. What?!? Yes, demonstrators were able to purchase this amazing bundle before the 2018-19 catalog goes live. Woohoo! Today’s post is the second in a trio of designs featuring the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper and Love What You Do Stamp Set. I had fun fussy cutting all those flowers and creating this Love What You Do – Thank You Wreath.
An even more amazing thing is we get to share this same Sneak Peak Bundle prepurchase with your as well. Yes! Starting May 1st you can purchase this beautiful bundle. With all the lovely designs in the Share What You Do Specialty Designer Paper the shimmery Grapefruit Grove floral design spoke to me and while creating my first design (you can check it out here) this wreath idea popped into my head.
BASE: This time I went with a Basic Black base layered with the new In Color Grapefruit Grove and Shimmery White. To add a bit of subtle texture I embossed the Shimmery White square with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder. [My first layer of shine……smile.]
WREATH: Yes, I’m a glutton for punishment. But I do find fussy cutting therapeutic. Most of the time anyway. Lol! I had a piece of designer paper left over and started cutting out flowers. When there was enough flowers I started playing with the pieces until I was happy with the layout. [TIP: I used a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits to give me the shape I wanted.] [My second layer of shine……smile.] The wreath felt like it needed something to finish it. After searching through my stash the Shimmer Black Ribbon called my name. [My third layer of shine……smile]
SENTIMENT: This clean and simple design called for the same type of sentiment. I went with “thank you” from the Love What You Do stamp set. I stamped it onto Shimmery White with Archival Black Ink and also fussy cut it.
There were several partial shimmery flowers left so I cut them out as well and used them to finish the inside on all three designs.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you are inspired by today’s Love What You Do – Thank You Wreath to get your hands inky and stamp to your hearts content. Have a great day!
